A Heavenly Perspective

Read these 3 Scriptures carefully: “…and then He will reward each person according to what they have done.” (Mt. 16:27) “…and you will have treasure in heaven.” (Mt. 19:21) “…you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” (Lk. 14:14)

Yes, he will reward and bless you in this life, but nothing in comparison to what awaits you in the next one. When you know that, simple decisions such as how you spend your time, your money and your energy suddenly become opportunities with great promise. Once you understand that , you begin to live with an unshakeable certainty that everything you do today – matters forever. And that truth can change your life forever.

Jesus said, “Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven.” (Lk. 6:22-23) Now Jesus didn’t mean that when you are mistreated on His behalf, you’ll be so happy you’ll want to dance an Irish jig. No, he said, “Great is your reward in heaven.” Those 6 words reveal why you can rejoice in the worst of circumstances. You see, there is a direct connection between something you do for God on earth, and something “great” He’s going to do for you in heaven. Jesus isn’t asking you to enjoy misery on His behalf; that’s masochism. He’s saying that your rewards in heaven, for certain actions on earth, will be so wonderful that simply knowing they are coming can transform how you live now. It can actually create spontaneous outbursts of joy!
